Alonso set to miss qualifying and start from pitlane

Alonso will not be in qualifying - here's why

Fernando Alonso will miss qualifying and start the Monaco GP from the pitlane after a huge shunt in practice, team boss Stefano Domenicali has confirmed to this blog.

The Spaniard went off at the entry to the Casino right at the start of the session, and slid along the barrier. Both right hand corners were ripped off and crucially the tub was badly damaged just behind the front wheel.

It is impossible to repair on site and the rules say a change of chassis means no qualifying and a pit lane start.
